It’s completely reversible. The outside is colorless in representation of a lack of emotion. The inside is colorful to show the emotions. The wearer gets to choose just how much of their emotions they let others see.

🇬🇧 2018 | Love is In the Bin| Banksy | Art Intervention/ Anti-art
COLOUR: The original print used black, white and red - powerful colours especially when paired together. A golden frame hiding a shredder was added to the litograph by the artist at some point before the print was exhibited. The use of gold frame to the piece seems an addition to add luxury and value to a print that was considered illegal grafitti before it was commercialised against the artist’s wishes; by hiding the shredder behind it, the choice of frame becomes tongue in cheek.
CONTEXT: This is arguably one of the most important art pieces of the 21st century; it is the first artwork in history to have been created during (and because of) an auction, and the installation of the shredder around 2006 makes it the most publicised premeditated self-destruction of a piece by its creator. The work was renamed by the gallery upon shredding and became an adaptation of the original piece. After the destruction became viral, Banksy released a video statement showing behind the scenes footage of when the mechanism was prepared “in case it was ever sold for auction”. The philosophy used by Banksy shows similarities with mentalities of post-postmodernism and anti-art (and to a lesser extent Stuckism) - although Banksy is protesting the value placed on certain objects, although ironically becomes the cause of his artwork increasing in value. Regardless, the artwork is a farcical poke at the presumptiveness found in the art-world and serves as an interesting introspection of the modern age.
